The Science and Engineering Libraries and the Lane Medical Library have teamed up to create an event for graduate students, post-docs, and undergraduate researchers. Gear Up for Research Day on Monday, April 6 will have multiple activities including an information fair, lightning talks, demos, and publisher workshops.

Campus organizations and units attending the event include the Office of Research, Biosciences Grant Writing Academy, ICME C2 Consulting, the Stanford Geospatial Center and the Technical Communication Program.  External participants representing publishers and research tool vendors such as Mendeley, EndNote, JOVE, PeerJ, IEEE, Annual Reviews, Elsevier and Springer will also offer lightning talks and workshops.

It only makes sense that if you were making solar cells or computer chips that you would choose the best materials for those tasks. It's a no-brainer, right? The problem is that the best materials might be very expensive to use. 

Such has been the case with gallium arsenide, but this may be changing.

Bruce Clemens and Garrett Hayes have developed a new way of making chips from gallilum arsenide that brings down the cost considerably. They created a video that describes a new manufacturing process, and they have preserved that video in the Stanford Digital Repository for you to download and watch!

Overleaf Logo

The Stanford University Libraries are hosting a one-year trial of Overleaf Pro for those who use LaTex for writing articles or dissertations and for those working on collaborative projects.  We would like your feedback on the Overleaf trial.  Are you using Overleaf?  Do you have suggestions for the Overleaf development team? Use this link to provide your comments.

Video frames

Imagine being able to search for video content not by keyword, but by using other visual information, like a still image, a screenshot or a single frame from another video. As the ubiquity of images and video in our culture increases, it is not surprising how useful this kind of functionality could be.

Civil EngineersEvery year Prof. Gary Griggs borrows the set of the current RSMeans Construction Cost Estimation Books from the Terman Engineering Library for several long weekends during winter quarter.  We wondered about the intense interest in these reference volumes and found out that the books are taking a winter vacation in Nevada with a student team from the Dept. of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
